    My number pad on my keyboard doesn't work all of a sudden. Anyone know how to fix? I have to press the shift first before pressing the numbers in order for it to work.

    Thanx.

    I am having the same problem, but I didn't know about the shift holding to use it.

    If anybody knows what this is, I'm sure that both of us would appreciate it.

    Thanx

    Number pad fix

    Hi.

    Go to System Preferences / Universal Access / Mouse and turn "Mouse Keys" off.

    Thanx for your help, that was really bothering me for a while there. Especially when I was trying to do speadsheets and the like.

    On a separate note, my eject button doesn't eject my internal drive, all it does is pops up the fancy graphic. It won't open or close the drive unless I use something like iTunes to do it.

    that's strange. I've never heard of that happening before. I'm sorry I can't help on that one.
